The Cincinnati Bengals have a revenge game on deck on Monday night.
They’ll square off vs. the very same team that beat them in the Super Bowl just two years ago, at least to some extent.
That, plus the fact that they’re 0-2 to start the season, has put a lot of pressure on QB Joe Burrow to take the field tonight.
He’s been dealing with a nagging calf injury since the start of the preseason, and he hasn’t looked healthy at all through the first two games of the year.
Fortunately for his team, it seems like Burrow is feeling well and will be a full go for Monday night’s showdown, as reported by Kelsey Conway.
Joe Burrow is feeling better and barring a setback from now until kickoff, the #Bengals QB is going to try and go tonight for Monday Night Football against the Rams, sources tell @Enquirer @DMRussini first reported things were trending in the right direction

Barring any setback, the former No. 1 pick should partake in the game vs. the 1-1 Rams.
The Bengals have their backs against the wall after dropping their first two games of the season, and to add insult to injury, the losses came against divisional rivals.
They also lost their first two games of last season before going almost undefeated for the rest of the way, so they feel confident in their ability to do that again.
However, the rest of their division got significantly better and healthier, not to mention the fact that Burrow may never be back to 100% unless he gets some actual rest.
Some fear that this decision to play through injury could lead to an even worse situation, and let’s hope that’s not the case with the LSU product.NEXT: Insider Reveals A Joe Burrow Update Ahead Of Rams Game
